CLASSICAL | Sound ExChange 

The upcoming concert "HEX" at Studio 180 is the end of the beginning for the contemporary classical collective Sound ExChange. Formed by Eastman School alumni in 2011, the chamber ensemble has long been engaging the community with innovative programming that rejects the traditional concert paradigm in favor of a more interactive experience with audience members. For the final concert presented through its Creative Collision Project grant, Sound ExChange offers an immersive, interdisciplinary program of works by Kurt Fedde, Matt Evans of Tigue, and Arcade Fire bassist Richard Reed Parry in a "living room" set featuring visual art by Amy Zhang, staging by Nigel Maister, and lighting design by Seth Reiser. Much of the music melds strings, electronics, and percussion with sounds made by mason jars, coins, and bike wheels. The compositions also draw from on the everyday sounds of cell phones, birds, rustling leaves, and even the human heartbeat.

Sound ExChange performs on Sunday, December 20, at Studio 180, 180 St. Paul Street. 6:30 p.m. $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
